So we had a baby

Malcolm Simon Hopkins was born on Tuesday the 13th of October. He was 8 pounds and half an ounce and 20 inches long. Malcolm came into our lives somewhere around 2:54pm with the darkest hair we have seen. He has been awesome to have around. He is pretty chill which is a bigger blessing then you can believe because Elliot has moved into the next phase of his life the Terrible Twos. I was worried how Elliot would handle the new baby but they have gotten along great. For the most part they ignore each other, every now and then Elliot will give Malcolm a hug or a pat and then be on his way forgetting that there is a baby in the house.

Yesterday we had our first family adventure out. We went to a pumpkin patch and picked out our Halloween pumpkin. Elliot thought the pumpkins were balls so every time he got a hold of one tried to bounce it. It was nice to spend some time outside and to have Steven with us it made for a great day.
